Journeys to the Underworld
 

 

 

On 15th day of 8th Moon 1976 (8th September 1976), the Jade Emperor of Heaven, issued a ‘Jade Edict’ to allow deity JiGong to take a medium’s soul by the name of ‘Yang Sheng’ of the temple ‘Sheng Xian Tang’ to visit the Underworld.

After about two years from 9th September 1976 to 30th July 1978, there were together 62 journeys made to the Underworld. Each visit was recorded immediately through ‘sand writing’ to reveal the extreme sufferings and punishments in Hell. It was then compiled into a book called ‘Journeys to the Underworld’ and this book is not a religious book in any sense. It does not belittle any religion but indeed it encourages readers to continue practising religious beliefs of their own choice.
 
The original version was in the Chinese language and in 1982 Mr Lee Teik Chong started to translate it into English and it was completed in May 1985 for the benefit of the English reading people. The editing was done by Mr Tang Eng Teik, lecturer at the Chinese Studies Department, University of Malaya, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
 
The book is published for FREE distribution and the journeys are real. It serves as a reminder to us that never to make any serious mistake in life and how to live a meaningful life. The descriptions are exactly the same as in the teachings of Tao of Heaven and with due respect to the people who had contributed to this book, I would like to include it, journey by journey in my website so that the purpose of the Jade Emperor is further disseminated through the internet for the modern world.
 
Master JiGong in the Temple of Tao of Heaven said,
 
“The ghostly jailers and the spiritual couriers
Of the Underworld
Are running around the four corners of the earth
Here they come
Seizing and arresting ten thousand evils
Here they come
Cutting off ten thousand loves and passions”
 
Di Zang Wang Pusa, is the Boddhisattva of the Underworld who made the vow to save all suffering souls in the Underworld before becoming a Buddha.
